Although I enjoyed all of the trials and tribulations Celia had to go through, trying to choose between Logan and Jesse, two hot and sexy rock-stars, I hated the fact that the book ended in a cliffhanger. Where's the rest of the story? So disappointed! I received this book, free, in a Goodread's First Read's Giveaway. Thank you.

I loved this third novel from Courtney Giardina! I noticed immediately how much stronger she had become as a writer and this book really proves her gift of storytelling. I loved the setting and could envision the scenery of Nashville and country music life. Celia, the main character, had a rare chance to work things out with her male best friend or start a new relationship with an up and coming country musician. I voted for the best friend Logan and look forward to seeing what happens in her seq ...more

Once again, Courtney Giardina delivers us a compelling story with characters we can relate to. This first book twists in ways you would not expect, leaving the reader hanging on until the very last word. Her talent shines through again as she weaves together the lives of three country music professionals in her newest love story. I can NOT wait for the sequel!

This is usually not my type of genre to read but I was pleasantly surprised with how engaging the book was. What I liked most about the book was how it felt real and relatable. I thought it had just the right amount of twist and turns to keep you guessing. I really enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it to anyone!

Wow, where should I even start? This book is beautifully written. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time.

I will say that there are many surprises in this book, and things do not go as planned at all.

Holy that ending ruined my life and I can't wait to see where book two takes us.

Couple of things that turn me off from this one:
- Cliffy
- Love triangle
- wishy washy heroine

The writing is good, and I've liked CG's other stories, I just couldn't get 100% on board with this one.
